Russia, Turkey working on new S-400 missile contract: Interfax

Russia and Turkey are working on a contract for the delivery of a new batch of Russian S-400 missile systems, the Interfax news agency cited a senior official at a Russian military cooperation agency as saying on Friday.

The official, Dmitry Shugaev, said he thought there was a "fairly high likelihood" Turkey and Russia would sign a contract for the delivery of an additional batch of S-400s next year.

What's next in impeachment: Judiciary Committee up next

After two weeks of public hearings, Democrats could soon turn the impeachment process over to the House Judiciary Committee. In the coming weeks, the House intelligence panel will submit a report to the Judiciary panel, and then Democrats will consider drafting articles of impeachment on President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine and the administration's attempts to block the investigation.

US election 2020: Could former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick save the day for moderate Democrats?

Deval Patrick's term as governor of Massachusetts did not get off to the best of starts in February 2007. With the state facing a $1 billion deficit and department heads told to trim budgets by 10 per cent, he chose to upgrade his official car from a Ford Crown Victoria to a Cadillac DeVille. This did not go down well and a few wags still call him "Cadillac Patrick". It is the sort of niggle which could come to haunt Mr Patrick, 62, as he enters the race for the Democratic nomination. But against that is his record as governor of Massachusetts, which impressed voters sufficiently to give him a second term. Democrat candidates "He was a terrific governor of...
